Tri-Continental Corporation Declares Second Quarter Distribution

Share:

Tri-Continental Corporation (the "Corporation") (NYSE:TY) today
declared a second quarter ordinary income distribution of $0.2650 per
share of Common Stock and $0.6250 per share of Preferred Stock. In
addition, the Corporation declared a long-term capital gain distribution
of $0.1065 per share of Common Stock. Distributions on Common Stock will
be paid on June 27, 2019 to Common Stockholders of record on June 19,
2019 and dividends on Preferred Stock will be paid on July 1, 2019 to
Preferred Stockholders of record on June 19, 2019. The ex-dividend date
for both the Common Stock and the Preferred Stock is June 18, 2019. The
$0.2650 per share ordinary income distribution and the $0.1065 per share
capital gain distribution on the Common Stock is in accordance with the
Corporation's distribution policy. The capital gain distribution, being
a special distribution, will be paid in stock except that any
stockholder of record as of June 19, 2019 may elect to receive such
distribution as follows: 75% in shares and 25% in cash; 50% in shares
and 50% in cash; or 100% in cash.

The Corporation has paid dividends on its common stock for 75
consecutive years. The Corporation's investment manager is Columbia
Management Investment Advisers, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of
Ameriprise Financial, Inc.

The Corporation's distributions on common stock will vary. The
Corporation's current distributions (as estimated by the Corporation
based on current information) are from the earnings and profits of the
Corporation. No amount of the Corporation's current distribution
consists of a return of capital (i.e., a return of some or all of your
original investment in the Corporation).

The net asset value of the Corporation's common shares may not always
correspond to the market price of such shares. Shares of many closed-end
funds frequently trade at a discount from their net asset value. An
investment in the Corporation is subject to stock market risk, which is
the risk that market prices for the Corporation's common shares may
decline over short or long periods, adversely affecting the value of an
investment in the Corporation.

Securities selected for the Corporation using quantitative methods may
perform differently from the market as a whole and there can be no
assurance that this methodology will enable it to achieve its objective.
The Corporation's portfolio investments are subject to market risk,
which may affect a single issuer, sector of the economy, industry or the
market as a whole. Fixed income investments, including convertible
securities, are subject to credit risk, interest rate risk, and
prepayment and extension risk. These risks may be more pronounced for
longer-term securities and high-yield securities ("junk bonds"). In
general, bond prices rise when interest rates fall and vice versa.
Convertible securities are subject to both the risks of their security
type prior to conversion as well as their security type after
conversion. The Corporation's use of leverage, including through its
preferred stock, exposes it to greater risks due to unanticipated market
movements, which may magnify losses and increase volatility of returns.

You should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and
expenses of the Corporation carefully before investing. A prospectus
containing information about the Corporation (including its investment
objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other information) may be
obtained by contacting your financial advisor or Columbia Management
Investment Services Corp. at 800-345-6611. The prospectus can also be
found on the Securities and Exchange Commission's EDGAR database. The
prospectus should be read carefully before investing in the Corporation.
There is no guarantee that the Corporation's investment goals/objectives
will be met or that distributions will be made, and you could lose money.
